Speaker Bebot Alvarez is paying no thoughts to criticisms that he and the remainder of Congress have develop into digital yes-men to President Rodrigo Duterte.
In a briefing, Alvarez was adamant that almost all of House members sincerely believed that the President did the fitting factor in imposing martial legislation in all of Mindanao and this doesn’t make them a stamp-pad Congress.
“Alam mo, ibig bang sabihin na kagaya niyan tama yung ginagawa ng Presidente e pagka sinabi naming tama siya subservient na kami? Di ba napaka-unfair naman na statement na yan,” mentioned Alvarez.
“Tingnan natin objectively yung sitwasyon. O, yung mga nagsasabi niyan, punta kayo sa Marawi; tingnan ninyo para maramdaman ninyo kung ano yung, kung gaaano kalalim yung problema doon,” he added.
Alvarez had this parting shot to his critics in social media: “Mag-congressman na muna sila.”
